    Around noon as well. But some days they lay earlier or later.

    My girls lay throughout the day, from about 7:00 in the morning until around 4 or 5:00 in the afternoon. occasionally, I will find a broken egg under the roost, usually with a soft shell that one of them must have popped out during the night.
